Illustrations in Snow White use sharp or smooth lines to reflect character traits, while old-fashioned comics-style illustrations in Pied Piper play up humor. Written with early readers in mind, these oversimplified versions of classic fairy tales feature short, repetitive sentence patterns, which may ease comprehension but often flow awkwardly. Written in singsongy rhyme, each vignette gives an overview of the god or goddess, explaining his or her role in the pantheon and associated activities and legends. Left-hand pages offer a familiar nursery rhyme (e.g., "Jack Sprat"); facing pages offer a comical illustration, along with a relevant question concerning etiquette ("What should the Sprats have done?").
